Default Adding Liqueur at Secondary to Maple Syrup Dark Ale

Hi All,

I am brewing a Maple Syrup Dark Ale (Midwest kit) and have read a lot of posts about the maple flavoring not being present when using maple syrup in recipes since the yeast eats up most of the syrup. I'd like to have some hints of maple in my beer and was curious if adding a maple liqueur to my secondary would be an option or if it would just have the same results as adding syrup.

Any opinions on this? How much should I add and what type of impact would this have on the ABV?

Thanks!

I've had success using the maple syrup to prime the beer instead of corn sugar.

For your question pertaining to potential ABV%

where

A=ABV of first liquid (Beer)
B=ABV of second liquid (Bourbon)
D=volume of first liquid (Beer)
E=volume of second liquid

Just keep your units alike, eg, 5.2 % ABV, 40 % ABV, 5 gallons, .25 gallons.
Stole that from this thread
